Mama Lucy's simply puts Max's and the Aristocrat to shame. Sated for under $10 and that includes a doggy bag. Pork guisantes exceeded anything I had eaten in Manila, Roxas, Bikol, Cebu and even Boracay. Pinakbet was cooked to perfection and a very generous serving. Very friendly owner chef. Worth a visit to Kauai. Oulala!

Stop here on our ay to the airport. Tiny little place with tables from the 1950's there is only counter service cafeteria style. They offer about 10 different entrees. Most I did not know so they walked me thru all the dishes. The rice noodles and fried garlic chicken were great. The banana dessert was excellent. The portoons are huge.... More

My wife's parents are Filipino. We were on island and a local recommended them. They went once. I asked if they wanted to go back. They said no, it wasn't that good. They'd know best. Sorry, Mama Lucy's.

If you like authentic filipino food then you must visit Mama Lucy's! Fresh and natural and always filled with healthy locally grown vegetables so much to choose from. And the price is great for the budget minded. Go around 11:00 am for an early lunch before the crowds.

We stopped in for a lunch and were not disappointed. The food was good, especially the noodles. Next time that is all I will order, so good. One negative- one I have often is that I expect a clean, presentable bathroom facility. This was not a good experience. Why don't these restaurants clean the bathroom and the light switches, and...

This is a sweet local kitchen that is good value. The food is plentiful and it is sure to fill you up for a very reasonable price. Not much ambiance, but great for a quick meal.

This is one of the few Filipino restaurants in Hawaii. Friendly people, good value. They close early if they run out of food early. So call before you go there if it is after 2p. We tried to go here twice after 4p and they were closed.
